Event Details

Introducing MicroBREW, a condensed version of our premier annual event, BREW. The event showcases Louisiana’s entrepreneurs and it’s the ideal opportunity to experience Nexus Louisiana’s work and impact with unparalleled access to coaching, capital and connections all in one place.

Each quarter we are bringing together leading business experts to offer practical and valuable insight for tech founders to help minimize risks, maximize success and achieve scale. MicroBREW is a great networking event for startups, investors, and enterprises to learn, network and collaborate in a variety of ways.

Why MicroBREW?

During the event you’ll have the opportunity to attend one or all of the three components that will take place.

MicroBREW Event


Everything You Need to Know About Equity Compensation

Presented by Innovation Catalyst

You can’t grow your business without building your team, but startups don’t typically have the capital to offer competitive salaries to employees during early stages of development. That doesn’t mean you can’t attract and fairly compensate your team, though: Many startups offer equity compensation, a non-cash form of payment that gives employees ownership in the organization. Equity compensation may be offered as options, restricted stock or performance shares.

If you’d like to learn how to implement equity compensation in your startup, you’re invited to join our first MicroBREW event on June 23 at 4:00 p.m. at the Baton Rouge Water Campus. Bill Ellison and Ben Brodnax of Innovation Catalyst will walk you through the different types of equity compensation, as well as how to set up and manage your own equity compensation program.
